This is a 1963 Bentley. Our customer wanted to restore the interior to its past glory. The old covers were original leather, however
they were damaged and had a previous refurbish attempt. They were red leather that was dyed/painted to match door panels out of

with their efforts.
I am negotiating the return of my original car and if
successful Yves will have another restoration to
